Bristol Channel Rib Cruising

Currently trying to get together a RIB cruising fleet for fun jaunts and exploration in the Bristol Channel.

If anyone is interested or has good ideas as to the best way of going about this, please get in touch.

Cheers,

SEB

Forum

The Forum is obviously the best way and place to organise a cruise. In the first instance, you need to make a decission, give us a date, place, route & timings and the forum will reply. You'll then be asked to advise on a launch and recover location, B&B etc etc. Now is perhaps not the best time of year as many are winterising (especially the Southern boys) however, you'll only find out if you post a request. I'll come !

Galefore, I sort of appreciate what you're saying, however, I'd follow Gavins comments by adding that I have enough abuse in my life without having to suffer it here as well.

Is it not enough that we have to put up with loutish behaviour on the streets - kids spitting and swearing - being afraid to walk late at night - suffering road rage / air rage and even supermarket trolly rage. We see it and hear it daily on prime time t.v - in professional sport - the school bus even - the list is endless of course - why therefore should we welcome or even expect to enjoy such behaviour on a forum where one wishes to escape such things?

You're right, the forum is taken up by gentlemen types wishing to exchange "in jokes" with eachother, advice, tips and knowledge. Long may it continue in that way.

Graeme Spencer.(MEME)

Spillage

Bilge, can't of been that rough if you were able to keep it in the cup Although, you "southerners" are known for being able to peel an orange in your pocket

(QUOTE)

"I do sort of appreciate what you're saying" was my original opening remark, so lets not take it to literally. I was in fact having a pop at Phil Davies (QUOTE) "in jokes".......

Anyway........

Seb, where are you thinking of launching from, Cardiff or something? - as we were going over the Severn Bridge the other day, I realised that it isn't 'that' large distance from Cardiff by water and would like to give that a go at some point.

Ian, are you folks going to be in the bay area, or right up North by Anglesey? - if you're in the bay, and down towards Aber sort of area, I'll see if I can launch at Fishguard and travel up by water and meet up with you folks.

-Alex
